The Forum for Anti-Doping in Recreational Sport seeks to build upon the developments in policy that have arisen since the Study on Doping Prevention (SoDP; Backhouse et al., 2014). One recommendation from the SoDP was to provide a platform for sharing examples of good practice in the emerging field of anti-doping in recreational sport. The Forum for Anti-Doping in Recreational Sport (FAIR) is intended to fulfil this recommendation. The objectives of the Forum are as follows: Review existing doping prevention interventions, including for food and food supplements, which are aimed at recreational sports people, and report on good practices; Provide a forum for open discussion and objective thinking about reducing the prevalence of doping for performance- and image-enhancing purposes; and Inform key stakeholders and policy makers on evidence-based planning and encourage them to adopt the good practices and to use information material/tools to raise awareness of doping issues to their users. The Technical Expert Group 1 (TEG1) conducted research designed to 1) understand developments in anti-doping in recreational sport since the 2014 SoDP and 2) to explore and provide examples of good or emerging practice in anti-doping in recreational sport.
